I am in search of the perfect banana bread recipe, one that is not too cake-y or muffin-y either. It can have butter and sugar in it, but I would still like to munch away and feel like I am eating something that would be suitable for breakfast time and not dessert. It should be just as delicious toasted the next day as it is still warm from the oven. I gave this one a try yesterday when I came across the recipe here. Although it was delicious and I liked the flavour of the added coconut I don't think it is exactly the 'bread' I am after. But hey, it was all gone withinn a few hours so I never got the chance to do the toast test. I guess that means I need to bake another loaf today and hide it from the children.
Banana Coconut Bread
1 cup brown sugar
3 big ripe bananas, mashed
1 1/2 cups s/r flour
1 tspn baking powder
1/2 cup desc coconut
1 tbspn milk
Mix this all up together, line a loaf tin with baking paper. Pour mixture in tin. Sprinkle with some Cinnamon/Sugar sprinkle (Masterfoods jar) or just make up a tbsn of each, mix it up and spinkle over the top, gives a nice sugary crunch!Bake for 45 mins at 180 or so.
And as I promised last week I have two fabric bundles to give away. I will call them scrap bundles as most of the pieces are small and only suitable for small projects, quilting or applique, but there are a few larger pieces as well. Each pack includes a mix of thrifted and new fabrics. I will cover the postage costs within Australia but please don't expect any fancy wrapping, they will come tightly squished in an Aus Post satchel.
It is first in first served, just leave a comment and say which one you would like. Let's keep it nice and make it one bundle each so that two people get lucky. I may even do a few more next week if I get around to sorting through more of my stash.
